  • Robert Parker, June 2004, Score: 92

    The 2000 was the finest Lascombes produced in over three decades, and the 2001 continues the great success this estate is enjoying under the guidance of Yves Vatelot (of Chateau Reignac) and Dr. Alain Raynaud (Chateau Quinault l'Enclos). A blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5%Petit Verdot, it spent 18 months in cask (4 on its lees), and was bottled unfiltered. A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by ripe aromas of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, and cassis. Medium-bodied, stylish, and elegant, with sweet tannin, impressive concentration, tremendous persistence as well as flavor intensity, and a 40+ second finish, this noble claret should be at its finest between 2005-2016.

Château Lascombes

Château Lascombes, bears the name of its first owner, Chevalier de Lascombes, who was born in 1625. Bought by Alexis Lichine in 1952, he rennovated the château's vineyard and cellars. In 1971 he sold the estate to the British brewer Bass-Charrington. The estate then passed on to Colony Capital in 2001.

Château Lascombes, bears the name of its first owner, Chevalier de Lascombes, who was born in 1625. Bought by Alexis Lichine in 1952, he rennovated the château's vineyard and cellars. In 1971 he sold the estate to the British brewer Bass-Charrington. The estate then passed on to Colony Capital in 2001. With this new ownership, the slightly unloved estate has again blossomed, due to strict selection methods and more labour intensive vinification. Yves Vatelot (of Reignac) and Alain Raynaud (of Quinault) have been consulting, and the jump in quality is impressive. The vineyards are planted with vines of an average age of 40 years with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. For ageing, 80-100% new oak barriques are used, depending on the character of the vintage.Read less

Region

Margaux

Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.
